If anyone can help me get this installed I'd appreciate it. It times out at the waiting for booatloader screen. I have the recovery ROM installed.

Try this:

Pull your battery
Put it back in
Hold down the Volume down arrow and press power
Press Volume Up, screen should say FASTBOOT USB in red
Start your RUU

If I'm in Fastboot USB Mode when I run the RUU, it fails at Verifying. If I boot into Fastboot while it's waiting to boot into recovery, it still times out.

Hmm, do you have the correct driver installed? Check your device manager under Android devices and see if the ADB driver is installed. If it is, install the driver from HTC Sync. Its called My HTC when it is installed

Yup, I definitely have the driver installed. I can use ADB just fine foe shell and push and so forth.

It connects initially to verify the info on the phone, but the RUU process reboots the phone and seems to expect it to boot into a certain bootloader. But it doesn't. I imagine the recovery ROM I flashed doesn't work with the RUU.

Does anyone have the original recovery ROM?

Had the same situation. I was able to get it to work by messing with the volume keys right after the reboot (pressed up and down a couple times.)

Having the same problem. It restarts the phone waiting for bootloader and then errors out.

Not sure what's going on. 100% positive I've got the adb driver. I've got HTC Sync working.

Using Win 7 64bit.

So it errors out and says a connection could not be made error 170.

I then disconnect the usb cable and the screen shows RUU but of course it's already disconnected.

No idea what to do.

Not sure why it is not working for you guys. My RUU would not update using the adb driver. I put it into fastboot usb mode. My pc then detected the phone. I went into device manager and checked under android devices. Make sure it says something like 'My HTC' and not 'HTC Dream' or something like that.
